Emirates Airline said on Wednesday it will serve Amsterdam with a second daily non-stop flight from December 4.

The Dubai airline said in a statement that a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft will add capacity of more than 3,700 seats a week in both directions.

The new daily service will complement Emirates’ Airbus A380 flight to Amsterdam, which started last August, less than two years after the launch of the route with a Boeing 777.

“Our decision to add another daily service to Amsterdam is a direct result of a surge in customer demand. The enhanced capacity and schedule will offer our customers more choice when travelling between Amsterdam and Dubai and onwards to a multitude of destinations in the Indian subcontinent, Africa, Far East and Australasia,” said Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, Commercial Operations West.

“Amsterdam has also proven to be a strong market for First Class and Business Class travel, so there is no doubt that growth remains a key objective for Emirates in the Netherlands,” he added.

Emirates SkyCargo, the airline’s award-winning cargo division, will offer 17 tonnes of belly-hold capacity on every flight.

Emirates has a fleet of 201 aircraft flying to 134 destinations in 76 countries and has a further 192 aircraft on order worth over $71bn.

Earlier this year, Emirates launched services to Warsaw, Algiers and Haneda. The airline has announced plans to launch services to Stockholm on September 4.
